What is a Scratched Cornea?


Red Eyes, Blurry Vision, and Irritation.

Immediately go to see your eye doctor or visit an emergency room or urgent care center as soon as possible if you suspect you have a corneal abrasion.
The cornea is the clear front surface of the eye, and part of its job is to focus light, enabling you to see. A healthy cornea is essential for good vision. In addition to disrupting vision, a scratched cornea makes your eye more susceptible to infection.
